Pro Helvetia > Studio residencies (Lebanon, Egypt, Morocco, Switzerland, Tunisia)
A studio residency (3 months) for Swiss artists, curators and cultural practitioners in the Arab region (to Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco and Lebanon) or, conversely, in Switzerland for artists, curators and cultural practitioners from the Arab region (from Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco and Lebanon).
Pro Helvetia Studio Residency is a platform that provides artists with the opportunity to gain a broad insight into a different cultural environment. In addition to a place to work and accommodation we offer specific coaching. We cover the costs of travel, accommodation, insurance and per diem. Applicants may benefit three times in total from a Pro Helvetia studio residency.
The Artists in Residence program started in Egypt in 2002. After being on hold for five years it was re-launched in 2017. The aim of the program is to enhance cultural exchange and artistic collaborations between Switzerland and the Arab region.
Deadline: 1 March 2019
